        De l'auscultation médiate

      J.-A. Brosson & J.-S. Chaude, Paris 1819 - The StethoscopeLaennec, René Théophile Hyacinthe (1781-1826). De l'auscultation médiate ou traité dudagnostic des maladies des poumons et du coeur . . . 2 vols., 8vo. [5], viii-xlviii, 456, [8]; xvi, 472pp. 4 folding engraved plates numbered I-IV. Paris: J.-A. Brosson & J.-S. Chaudé, 1819. 204 x 124 mm. 19th century quarter morocco, boards, gilt spines (a little faded). Minor foxing, one plate number trimmed, but very good.First Edition, First State, with the original cancellandum leaf a*2. Laennec's invention of the stethoscope, which he announced in his De l'Auscultation médiate, provided the first adequate method for diagnosing diseases of the thorax, and represented the greatest advance in physical diagnosis between Auenbrugger's percussion and Röntgen's discovery of x-rays. Laennec used his new tool to study the sounds made by the movements of the heart and lungs, for which he invented a terminology. He described pneumothorax, established the fact that all phthisis is tuberculous, distinguished pneumonia from bronchitis and from pleuritis, and gave descriptions of bronchitis, edema of the lungs, emphysema, tuberculosis and lung cancer that have in many respects remained unsurpassed until today. He also provided the first description of chronic interstitial hepatitis, for which he coined the term "cirrhosis"; the disease is often called "Laennec's cirrhosis." The four folding plates illustrate Laennec's stethoscope (a short wooden tube), pathologic conditions of the lung, and deformity of the chest from chronic latent pleurisy.P. J. Bishop, Laennec's bibliographer, states that "the first edition of Laennec's De l'auscultation médiate was published on 15 August 1819, in a first printing of 2100 copies, with a second impression of 1500"; however, he does not indicate whether these printings correspond to the states with and without the original leaf a*2.

        British Institution for promoting the Fine Arts in the United Kingdom... [including] Catalogue of the Works of British Artists place in the gallerys of the British Institution, Pall-Mall

      London: W. Bulmer, 1819. Quarto, 28pp., folding plate, uncut; a little dusted and some foxing, very good, in the original plain paper wrappers, manuscript '1819' in ink to front. A second rarity from the British Institution, again listing paintings by John Glover. As with the prior item in this list, these exhibition catalogues are only very rarely offered for sale, and are scarce in libraries. An attractive inclusion in this issue is the folding engraved plate, which shows simple sketches of many of the eminent visitors to the exhibition. This particular catalogue dates from 1819, after Glover's fruitful sketching tours of the Lake District and Wales. As a result, it is not surprising to learn that he exhibited two large canvases here, the first his view of 'Tintern Abbey', much beloved of the Romantics, and a second of 'Durham Cathedral'. The painting of Tintern Abbey may well be the same painting he is known to have exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1818, where it was listed as "Superb in ruins, still the holy pile, etc." Interestingly, the great historian of the RA Algernon Graves attributes the painting to Glover's eldest son John Richardson Glover, but recent work appears to confirm the work was executed by the elder Glover; indeed, the attribution here to "J. Glover" would seem to strongly support this thesis. Regarding the second Glover painting listed here, it is known that he sold a vast painting of Durham Cathedral for 500 guineas in 1812, and that he painted the subject again in 1838. This 1819 canvas, listed as a modest 2'3" by 4'3", would appear to be a third version. Among the many other contributors listed here are also Constable, William Glover, Richard Westall, and Samuel Prout, uncle of the more famous John Skinner Prout.

        Traité d'economie politique, ou simple exposition de la manière dont se forment, se distribuent et se consomment les richesses; quatrième édition, corrigée et augmentée, a laquelle se trouve un épitome des principes fondamentaux de l'économie politique.

      Chez Deterville,, A Paris, 1819 - 2 voll. in-8° (205x128mm), pp. LXXXVI, 477; (4), 509; legatura del tempo m. pelle marrone e angoli con dorso adorno di titolo in oro su tassello, filetti e segnature di volume in oro. Piatti marmorizzati, segnacoli in seta verde. Ottimo esemplare. Quarta edizione del più popolare testo di economia politica dopo la "Wealth of Nations" di Adam Smith. L'edizione originale era apparsa a Parigi nel 1803. Dopo la pubblicazione di questo trattato, l'economista lionese, membro del Tribunato nel 1799, fu dal Primo Console privato della carica politica per le idee troppo liberali espresse nel suo libro e dovette attendere fino al 1814, dopo la caduta dellImpero, per poterne far uscire la seconda edizione. Questo importantissimo trattato sarà poi ristampato ben 32 volte e tradotto in tutte le principali lingue. Say, vero padre della scuola ottimistica liberale, divulgò e sviluppò le dottrine smithiane in senso ancor più liberistico, sostenendo l'improduttività della spesa pubblica, la libera coniazione e rifiutando qualsiasi ingerenza statale in materia economica, polemizzando vivacemente con Ricardo, Malthus e Sismondi. Joseph Alois Schumpeter, nella sua fondamentale "History of Economic Analysis" (New York, 1954), definisce il testo di Say "the most important of the links in the chain that leads from Cantillon and Turgot to Walras" e ne rivendica la continuità rispetto alla tradizione dell'economia politica francese di Sismondi e di Cournot. Say fu il vero padre della scuola ottimistica liberale, sviluppata in modo ancora più incline al "laissez-faire" rispetto alle teorie smithiane, sostenitore dell'improduttività della spesa pubblica, della libera coniazione e del rifiuto di ogni ingerenza dello stato nel ciclo economico. Cfr., per le varie edizioni dell'opera: Kress, B.4729. Cat. Einaudi, 5118 e sgg. Palgrave, III, 357-358: "J. B. Say is usually ranked, with A. Smith and Ricardo, amongst the fathers of economic science.It is he, more than any oyher writer, who impressed on political economy the character of a natural science". Brunet, V, 177. Graesse, VI, 287. Cfr. Carpenter, Economic Bestsellers, XXXIII (1). Goldsmith, 18616. Teilhac, 377. Macchioro, Studi di storia del pensiero economico, pp. 103-113: Cossa, Introduzione allo studio dell'economia politica, pp. 327-30; Coquelin & Guillaumin, II, p. 649. Schumpeter, pp. 492-93. Mc Culloch, pp. 21-22: "His principal merit in a scientific point of view consists in his showing, in a more satisfactory manner than it had been done previously, that effective demand depends upon production".

        A New Map of Part of the United States exhibiting the North West, Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois Territory the States of Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. From the latest Authorities.

      John Cary, London 1819 - Detailed and important John Cary?s map of the American Midwest and the Old Northwest, great lakes regions as well as portions of the Eastern Seaboard and Canada , from his New Universal Atlas. The various frontier forts are shown, as are Indian villages, white settlements, etc. It includes numerous interesting notations particularly relating to navigation in the Great Lakes and portages throughout the region. The western boundary of the six Indian nations is shown to be a creek in western New York. An Indian boundary line by the treaty under General Wayne 1795 cuts through Ohio from St. Lawrence from Fort Recovery in Indiana territory and then south to the border to Kentucky. In Kentucky is a note "this colony was first discovered by Js. Macbride & others in the year 1754." Colonel D. Boon explored in 1769 and with his family and five others began the first settlement in 1773.When we compare this copy of 1819 to an earlier edition of the same map dated 1805, one notices the gradual transformation of the Western Territory into the states of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and the Northwestern Terriotry."

        Pompeiana: The Topography, Edifices, and Ornaments of Pompeii (WITH SIGNED LETTER).

      London: Rodwell and Martin, 1817-1819. - Three-quarter leather and marbled boards. 8vo. (xxxi), ad leaf, 273pp, errata. Engraved frontispiece. Illustrated with 77 numbered plates and 3 unnumbered engravings. With original autograph letter from Sir William Gell laid in (circa 170 words). First edition. Gell, an English archaeologist, served as consort to Caroline, consort of the prince of Wales, and accompanied her to Italy in 1814. His work, of which this is the first volume issued, informed Europe about what was being revealed as the ancient Roman towns of Herculaneum and Pompeii were slowly being uncovered. There was a constant demand in Europe for books illustrated with accurate pictures of the site. Gell made drawings on the spot using the camera lucida. Gandy, an architect and landscape designer, was largely responsible for the text. The plates in this volume show tomb interiors, decorated rooms, buildings and ruins, paintings and decoration, and there are also many detailed maps. Many of the plates are folding and there are 2 in color. The autograph letter from Gell, which is undated, is addressed to a Mr. Claxton, thanking him for sending a copy of his book, and mentioning a possible visit. Gell also discusses the political situation, the arrival of the new Secretary of Legation, Mr. Kennedy, Sir Grenville Temple of Malta, trade matters, the current financial situation, visits with friends, and other matters. The letter is written in very small ink script on a small piece of stationary folded over for mailing. All autograph material from Gell is quite rare. Condition-wise the text and plates in this copy are in very good shape with the amount of foxing one would expect for a book of this age. The binding is in rather poor condition with the front cover detached and the spine completely lacking. The leather tips are worn and there is some scuffing and wear to the marbled boards.

A LANDMARK WORK IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF DISEASES OF THE LUNGS AND HEART, ANNOUNCING THE INVENTION OF THE STETHOSCOPE. As head physican at the Necker Hospital in Paris, Laennec's investigations of emphysema, tuberculosis, and other chest diseases inspired him to improvise a technological innovation that would revolutionize physical diagnosis. Although auscultation had been known since the days of Hippocrates, and diagnostic percussion of the chest had most recently been advocated by Auenbruegger, these methods were often inconvenient and were subject to frequent misinterpretation. Experimentation with a rolled paper cylinder led Laennec to invent a more reliable diagnostic instrument, a foot-long tube of cedar wood, which amplified the sounds of his patients' hearts and lungs. Even more impressive than his invention of this brilliantly simple instrument, however, were the uses Laennec made of it: through methodical observation he taught himself the significance of the various sounds produced by the movements of the heart and lungs and drew up a clear and detailed classification system correlating.

Folio, contemporary red quarter morocco, somewhat worn at extremities. Very fine. ---- FIRST EDITION. Study of an inscription dated A.D. 109, containing the record of loans made in the area of Veleia (northern Italy, near Parma) under the "alimentary institutions" established by Trajan. In this system the imperial treasury lent money to farm owners, and the interest on the loans was paid into a municipal fund that was then used for the support of poor children in the area. The study contains a physical description of the bronze tablet, a discussion of earlier works about it and the author's own opinion, a list of abbreviations used in the inscription and a full transcription.The volume was printed in Parma soon after the death of Giambattista Bodoni (on whom see Updike, @Printing Types II, 163-76). The type of printing, the high-quality paper and the layout all show his influence; Stamperia Carmignani may also have been using some of Bodoni's type.Laid into this copy is an autograph letter from the author in French, dated 6 March 1821 and addressed to "Excellence," i.e. the Morgado de Mateus, D. José Maria de Sousa Botelho, a diplomat famous for his 1817 edition of the @Lusiadas of Camões.

        Repertorium Bibliographicum; or, Some Account of the Most Celebrated British Libraries.

      London: William Clarke 1819 - First edition, small 4to, [vi],[16],vii-xlviii,[2]-138,133*-138*,139-454,449*-454*,455-672,[2]pp., engraved frontispiece and 9 engraved portraits (lightly foxed), 2 woodcuts in the text, cont. calf, neatly rebacked, spine gilt, morocco title label, edges marbled, a nice copy. A survey of the principal public and private libraries in England, listing highlights of the collections and concluding with brief accounts of 30 important English book auctions from the 17th century onwards. William Beckford assisted in the compilation of this work, particularly in the description of his own library at Fonthill. Bound in between pages vi and vii, is an 8-leaf pamphlet attributed to William Beckford: "A Dialogue in the Shades, between William Caxton, Fodius, a bibliomaniac, and William Wynken, Clerk, a descendant of Wynken de Worde: to which is added, the Story of Dean Honywood's Grubs. [In verse.] With explanatory notes, by W. W." [With: "A Ballad entitled Rare Doings at Roxburghe-Hall."], [By William Clarke.] Printed by J. F. Dove, [1819]. Claude Cox, in his introduction to the 1985 reprint, identifies the three characters in the engraving at the head of the title as William Beckford, William Clarke (bookseller), and William Caxton. The 'Dialogue' is a witty and well-versed satire on book collecting of the time. Cox regards the 'Ballad' as being "more straightforward, but not less skilful. The story of the battle between the Earl Spencer and the Marquis of Blandford for the Valdarfer Boccaccio at the Roxburghe sale". Provenance: Charles W. G. Howard (bookplate); Professor Birrell (signed in pencil with small neat stamp on title). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
